PPI::Token::BOM(3)    User Contributed Perl Documentation   PPI::Token::BOM(3)

NAME
       PPI::Token::BOM - Tokens	representing Unicode byte order	marks

INHERITANCE
	 PPI::Token::BOM
	 isa PPI::Token
	     isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION
       This is a special token in that it can only occur at the	beginning of
       documents.  If a	BOM byte mark occurs elsewhere in a file, it should be
       treated as PPI::Token::Whitespace.  We recognize	the byte order marks
       identified at this URL: <http://www.unicode.org/faq/utf_bom.html#BOM>

	   UTF-32, big-endian	  00 00	FE FF
	   UTF-32, little-endian  FF FE	00 00
	   UTF-16, big-endian	  FE FF
	   UTF-16, little-endian  FF FE
	   UTF-8		  EF BB	BF

       Note that as of this writing, PPI only has support for UTF-8 (namely,
       in POD and strings) and no support for UTF-16 or	UTF-32.	 We support
       the BOMs	of the latter two for completeness only.

       The BOM is considered non-significant, like white space.

METHODS
       There are no additional methods beyond those provided by	the parent
       PPI::Token and PPI::Element classes.

SUPPORT
       See the support section in the main module
